- 28th - Appetite Seminar
Thursday, November 28th
MCBC needs volunteers this Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 28, to help with the Pine Mountain loop ride. This year MCBC, in coordination with Access4Bikes, the NorCal High School Cycling League and Marin County Parks, supports a closure of Cascade Canyon/Repack Fire Road from 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM.
We need 5 volunteers to help point out alternate routes and we need people to help with a post-ride gathering at the new home of the Marin Museum of Bicycling and Mountain Bike Hall of Fame at 1966 Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Fairfax.
Volunteers with MCBC help us with many of these tasks:
Represent MCBC at your favorite events, like Bike To Work Day, The Fairfax Festival, the Marin Century and Biketoberfest! Outreach is the most important way to get others interested in the programs and projects that make Marin a great place to bike. It’s also a great way to meet new people who share your passion for cycling!
Behind the scenes, MCBC volunteers keep the office operating smoothly by helping with mailings, data entry, compiling new-member packets, filing, archiving newspaper articles, graphic design for special event pieces, writing articles, and office cleanup. Let us know if you have a few weekday hours to spare to help us in this very important way.
MCBC provides free valet bike parking throughout Marin County at key community events, offering cyclists the opportunity to have fun at events while avoiding the traffic congestion and parking hassles. This very-social all-volunteer service includes bike parking, promoting MCBC, and recruiting new members.
Please help MCBC get the word out about our events and quarterly news. Enjoy traveling around the county as you distribute brochures, newsletters, and posters for us to a pre-determined list of local bike shops, libraries, community centers, and businesses. Distribution can even be done on your bike!
Got great phone skills? Help call MCBC members to attend local meetings, collect feedback on how MCBC is doing, invite lapsed members to renew, discuss ballot issues, special events, etc. We provide the script; all you need to do is speak clearly and cheerfully!
